3 Guard Suspects Arrested for 4-Hour Gang Rape

The police paraded nine suspects arrested for crimes ranging from kidnapping and armed robbery to rape and illegal possession of firearms.

Adewale Osifeso, the state Police Public Relations Officer, who paraded the suspects before the media on Monday, Jan. 30, at the command headquarters, said three of the suspects are security guards accused of raping a lady.

He claimed the lady went to see a friend in Ibadan and was met by three security guards at a desolate location around 9 p.m.

“In a rather bizarre turn of events, the young lady, having been deprived of her mobile phone, was whisked to another desolate spot, where she was held until around 01.25 am the next day,” he added.

“In furtherance of the above, the three guards took turns to have unlawful carnal knowledge of the young lady and as well forced her to transfer money into a bank account before she was abandoned to her fate at the scene.

“During questioning, the suspects confessed to the crime. One Dane gun, which they used in the criminal activity, and the victim’s Infinix mobile phone were recovered from the suspects.”

Success Samuel, 46, was also paraded after being arrested in connection with the alleged murder of Moshood Orolade, 65, in Ibadan, the state capital.

Orolade was murdered in cold blood at his home in Alakia, Egbeda Local Government Area, on Tuesday, January 3, 2023.

According to Osifeso, the alleged killer and other suspects entered the victim’s home with various weapons.

He went on to say that during the raid, which lasted several hours, the hoodlums killed their target and robbed members of his family of valuables such as cell phones and large sums of money.

“On January 3, 2023, around 01.30 am, a notorious robbery syndicate invaded a community in Ibadan’s Alakia area with guns, cutlasses, and other weapons,” Osifeso said.

“Unfortunately, the family’s head, whose name was later given as Moshood Orolade, was brutally murdered in cold blood by the armed robbers before fleeing the scene of the crime. According to the report, the police received a distress call, which resulted in the arrest of the kingpin of the armed robbery syndicate.”

Nine suspected members of the Alora and Aiye cult confraternities, as well as other criminal suspects, were also paraded.
